I take PATH from exchange place to NYC daily but you don't mention a time of travel. I commute @ 10 am where there is no crowds and I am back in JC after 7 PM which is a little crowded but not terrible.

In order to vote you first must register. If you are not registered you cannot vote. Surprise you smart folks did not know that. To register to vote you must:

Be a U.S. citizen;
Be 18 years old by the end of this year;
Not be in prison or on parole for a felony conviction; and
Not claim the right to vote elsewhere.

JERSEY CITY, N.J. (CBSNewYork) — Parking in any major city can be a hassle.

But Jersey City leaders have a plan to solve it, with a little help from local schools, CBS2’s Nina Kapur reported Thursday.

The city is looking to open school parking lots to the public during overnight hours and weekends.

This world is full of people some are black, some are Jews, some are Christians, some are atheist, some are even gay. The world is not just straight white men and everyone of these groups has a history. I am assuming I am much younger than most on here, I learned about Walt Whitman and Alan Turing in High School and the world did not end.

New Jersey to require schools to teach LGBT history

Home away from home


Hannan Adely, North Jersey Record

WOODLAND, N.J. – New Jersey has become the second state in the nation after California to adopt a law that requires schools to teach about LGBT history in a move hailed by civil rights groups as a step toward inclusion and fairness.

Gov. Phil Murphy, a Democrat who promised to promote equality for gay and transgender people during his campaign, signed the bill Thursday. Among those celebrating the news was Jaime Bruesehoff of Vernon, whose 12-year-old transgender child, Rebekah, spoke in support of the bill in Trenton in December.

“This bill is so important for our young people,” Bruesehoff said. “They need to see examples of themselves in the history being taught and in classes they are going to each day. We know representation matters.

Spotlight On: Affordable housing
#11
Home away from home
Home away from home


BY Michael Hill, Correspondent | June 3, 2019, 5PM EST

An NJ Spotlight forum put the spotlight on the quest to make progress on the decadeslong battle of building affordable housing in the Garden State.

“The very premise for the original Mt. Laurel litigation and the doctrine to move poor people out of the poverty-stricken urban areas and into the suburbs has literally been turned upside down,” said Peter Reinhart, director of the Kislak Real Estate Institute at Monmouth University.

Reinhart says Generation X and millennials’ appetite for city life and access to mass transportation have removed places such as Jersey City from the “poor-city” list when the Mount Laurel lawsuit began five decades ago. There were some unintended consequences.

“There’s now this system of displacement happening as a result of gentrification where now a place in Jersey City like Greenville where the rent was $700 a month 10 years ago. The rent is now $2,000 a month,” said Housing and Community Development Network Board Chairman John Restrepo.

Flat Home Values Spur Rental Demand During Hudson County’s First Quarter
#13
Home away from home
Home away from home


Hudson County heavyweights Hoboken and Downtown Jersey City have historically led the marketplace but haven’t seen any significant rise in property appreciation for some time, and that reality could be what’s driving a shift toward more rentals closing in the waterfront neighborhoods.

The latest market report from Pure Properties shows that homeowners in Downtown Jersey City haven’t witnessed much of a change in their values year-on-year, with the average sale price of a 1-4 family home retreating 1% to $1.416 million during this year’s first quarter. However, that might be somewhat welcome news after the real estate conversation last year focused around a citywide revaluation that walloped Downtown homeowners particularly hard.

https://jerseydigs.com/jersey-city-hob ... te-market-report-q1-2019/

The calendar change to 2019 marked one year since new tax assessments were issued and home price volatility has certainly been less pronounced than anticipated. In terms of 2019’s first quarter, sale prices for 1-4 family homes actually rose 9% from Q4 of 2018, while condo sales settled in at $700,000, a 3% dip both since 2018’s Q4 and year-on-year.

Wait, What? Do you understand what rent control is?

Rent control is a government program that places a limit on the amount that a landlord can demand for leasing a home or for renewing a lease. Rent control laws are usually enacted by municipalities and the details vary widely. All are intended to keep living costs affordable for lower-income residents.


I don't believe it is for lower-income residents. That would be Section 8. If you make too much money, then you would not qualify for section 8. Maybe the same should apply to rent-control.
You can make $1,000,000.00 /year and still live in a rent-control apartment. You can live in Florida and still not give up your rent control apartment in Jersey City. These are some reasons why I believe we need to update the ordinance.


Low income for dtjc is 35K-50k which does not qualify for section 8 unless you are family of 8.

Jersey City Councilperson Reports Rent-Control Crisis Downtown
#19
Home away from home
Home away from home


JERSEY CITY, NJ – Responding to Jersey City’s housing-cost crisis, Ward E Councilperson James Solomon will release an in-depth report on the troubling state of rent control Downtown. The report, which follows a six-month grassroots effort by Solomon’s office and a team of unpaid local volunteers, documents a pattern of skyrocketing rent increases, profit-driven tenant displacement, and landlords who flout disclosure requirements without consequence.



Along with team members and Jersey City residents, Solomon will introduce the report at a 5:00 p.m. press conference on Tuesday, April 30 on the steps of City Hall, 280 Grove Street, Jersey City, NJ.

https://www.insidernj.com/press-releas ... -control-crisis-downtown/

“Our analysis suggests there are over 1,000 rent-controlled units in Ward E alone – more than any other source of affordable housing in these neighborhoods”, says Solomon. “But the City maintains no comprehensive list of which buildings actually offer residents rent-control protections. We cross-referenced public tax records to come up with our own list, spent months knocking on doors to hear from tenants first-hand, and combed through 1,290 mostly handwritten unit rent records from landlord rent registration rolls obtained through the Open Public Records Act.”

Details
In 2015 Jersey City legalized short-term rentals and began collecting hotel taxes. Last year alone, the city collected $1.9 Million in tax revenue from short term rentals.

At the May 8th City Council Meeting, a new ordinance will be voted on that would shut down a large portion of Airbnb’s in Jersey City. Below are some highlights from the proposed ordinance:

-Tenants may not operate short term rentals and apply for short term rental permits, even if you have permission to sublet your apartment on Airbnb
-Full apartment rentals in buildings larger than 3 units will be illegal
-Property owners who live on site in 3 family homes are limited to one Airbnb unit

The May 8th City Council meeting will have a public input session before the vote is taken. Join us to voice your support of short-term rental rights for owners and tenants.

Good Luck!!

Jersey City’s Hidden Gem: The Sociable Southside
#25
Home away from home
Home away from home


Dixon Leasing has been involved in Jersey City’s southernmost neighborhoods for seven years, and we’ve watched the area flourish as of late. When community leader Chris Perez invited us to take a tour of the community, we jumped at the chance to learn more about the area’s past and meet a few of our neighbors who are influential in its flourishing atmosphere. On a sunny August day, we began our neighborhood tour and met with our knowledgeable guides at the Richard Street light rail station in Greenville, just a 10-minute ride from Exchange Place.

Resized Image


Chris, an investor and homeowner in the area, acts as a community liaison of sorts, engaging deeply and broadly with people and organizations devoted to positive change. He’s the leader of both the Bayside Park Neighborhood Association and the Berry Hill/Claremont Neighborhood Association and an active participant in a dozen other groups around town. He has a quick smile and an authentic way of expressing his passion for the Southside. And, as we soon found out, it’s impossible to walk more than a block without Chris recognizing, or being recognized by, a neighbor.

The 50 Jersey City bars that matter, ranked worst to best
#27
Home away from home
Home away from home


By Jeremy Schneider | NJ Advance Media for NJ.com
It's no stretch to consider Jersey City's burgeoning nightlife — part and parcel of an enormous economic resurgence throughout much of the city — as the most robust in all of New Jersey. There seems to be a scene for everyone, from the chic skyline-glancing bars and clubs along the sky-scraping waterfront, to the hipster-trendy spots down on Newark Avenue and around the Grove Street PATH station. And don't sleep on the local favorites in up-and-coming Heights and Greenville neighborhoods, either.

But which bar is the best? We spent more than a month sampling the Jersey City nightlife, hitting more than 50 bars in the process (with a few hangovers to prove it). We judged the bars on ambiance, decor, drinks, food, happy hour specials and more to crown the best bar in the city.

NOTE: Jersey City has more than 50 bars, but we had to cap it somewhere and made sure to hit all the favorites. Did we miss your favorite bar? Who did we overrate or underrate? Let us know in the comment section.
